Week Ending 5th April 2015 / Albums Chart

Louane‘s Chambre 12 climbs one place to spend a second week at the top of the French albums chart in its fifth week inside the top 10 (25,577 sales / +25%). The LP has sold 159,529 copies so far. After three consecutive weeks at Number One, Les Enfoirés are down to two with Sur La Route Des Enfoirés in their fourth week on the chart (24,100 sales / -33%).

Reason gives Selah Sue her second top 10 album in France as it’s this week’s highest new entry at number three with 17,016 copies sold. Her self-titled LP peaked at nine in April 2012. There is another debut inside the top five as Kaaris opens at four with Le Bruit De Mon Ame (13,600 sales). It’s the rapper’s second top five LP, his Or Noir reached number three in November 2013.

In its 30th week inside the ten best-sellers, Kendji Girac‘s eponymous album moves down two places at five (11,700 sales / +4%). Chaleur Humaine slips two at number six for Christine And The Queens in its 15th week in the top 10 (11,500 sales / +7%). It’s also down two places at seven for Black M with Les Yeux Plus Gros Que Le Monde in his 33rd week inside the top 10 (8,000 sales / +19%). The compilation NRJ Spring 2015 is a non-mover at number eight in its second week on the chart (6,900 sales / +25%).

In his 38th week inside the 250 best-sellers, Sam Smith has finally managed to enter the top 10 as In The Lonely Hour climbs three places at nine (6,800 sales / +55%). Soprano‘s Cosmopolitanie falls three at number ten in its fifth week in the top 10.

Three albums drop out of the top 10 this week. After seven consecutive weeks inside the ten best-sellers, the soundtrack to the movie Fifty Shades Of Grey moves down five places at eleven. Calogero also falls five at number 15 with Les Feux D’Artifice in his 33rd week on the chart. Last week’s new entry at nine, the tribute album to Pierre Bachelet, Nous L’Avons Tant Aimé is down to number 22.

It’s not their third top 10 LP in France, but Endless Forms Most Beautiful jumps from 148 to number twelve for Nightwish as there was a physical release last week (6,000 sales). Once was number nine in June 2004, and Dark Passion Play peaked at six in October 2007. Julie Zenatti enters at 13 with Blanc (5,100 sales). It was close from being her highest-charting album, Comme Vous… reached number twelve in November 2004. Her last studio LP Plus De Diva had only peaked at 30 in March 2010.

Fenomeno is new at number 14 for Lartiste (4,900 sales). In his third week on the chart, Mark Knopfler is back up three places at 16 with Tracker. The Day Is My Enemy gives The Prodigy their third top 20 album in France, as it debuts at number 17 (4,300 sales). Always Outnumbered, Never Outgunned was also at 17 in August 2004, and The Fat Of The Land peaked at number two in July 1997 (behind the slightly different Romanza by Andrea Bocelli).

I Muvrini‘s Invicta opens at 18. Their Gioia reached number six in March 2010. As there was a show about their long careers on French TV last week, Alain Souchon & Laurent Voulzy climb a massive 29 places at 21 in their 19th week inside the top 250.

French dance DJ / producer Madeon has a new entry at number 29 with Adventure (3,000 sales). Another tribute LP, but for a living artist : Joyeux Anniversaire M’sieur Dutronc opens at 30. Love Me Tender is new at number 37 for Vigon Bamy Jay (2,500 sales). Les Soul Men debuted and peaked at seven in April 2013. Erick Bamy sadly passed away on 27th November 2014, aged 64.

Have a very nice week.
